    I already played around a bit wit the beta a while back and made an iterator library to get to know this new language. It's here for anyone interested: https://github.com/polyfloyd/go-iterator

    Regarding call chaining, it is still possible to chain things with operations that return different types, but they have to be done with functions instead of methods, so the result is still the same, just it's a little less readable. There is a generic iterator implementation by polyfloyd that doesn't support method chaining, but imo being able to chain iterators is one of their biggest strengths, since implementing lazy evaluation manually for a single operation isn't that difficult, its when you need to perform multiple kinds of manipulations that it gets messy.

    You still end up with the same problem, though, just in a container instead of directly on your computer's filesystem. The root issue is that if you are working on two modules where one depends on the other, say github.com/yourname/server and github.com/yourname/client, the compiler (and gopls) is checking your function calls, etc. against the version in the repository, not the version you have on your computer that you just modified. This means that you would have to make a change, commit it to the repo, then do go mod download to get the changes, and then check to see if they work.

What are some alternatives?

When comparing go-iterator and client you can also consider the following projects:

gtools - Generic tools for go 1.18+

lo - 💥 A Lodash-style Go library based on Go 1.18+ Generics (map, filter, contains, find...)
